Dundee United have suffered at the hands of Hearts twice already this term, going down 3-0 at home to the Jambos in the league in September before losing out to John McGlynn’s men on penalties in the League Cup in October.
Lightning is just 11/8 with Ladbrokes to strike for a third time as the pair renew hostilities at Tynecastle but on this occasion, the Terrors could gain some revenge by picking up a maximum haul and boosting their European hopes in the process.
The good news for punters is that United are a massive 23/10 via BetVictor to take the points back to Tannadice and the magnitude of that price means punters needn’t look any further for value; nevertheless, for those so inclined there is plenty out there.
For starters, it’s worth keeping a high-scoring encounter onside as Peter Houston’s charges have struck 18 times in their last six matches in all competition. Bet365’s 11/10 for the contest to produce over 2.5 goals is way too high then, Stan James quote an enticing 11/5 for the Terrors to find the net at least twice themselves and it’s 10/1 via William Hill for Dundee United to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.
On the back of his double against Inverness a week ago, Jon Daly will rightly be well backed at 6/1 courtesy of Paddy Power to bag the first of the contest while Stan James post 2/1 against the United front man adding to his tally at any stage.
However, having opened his account for Houston’s team a week ago, ex-Tynecastle favourite Rudi Skacel isn’t without appeal at 9/1 (bet365) to break the hearts of his former club by putting his current employers 1-0 up.
